Joy Of Cooking Update: Fish House Punch

Unlike last time, Humu and I arrived to my friend Leslie's housewarming party on the correct day this last attempt.

We brought Fish House Punch (sugar syrup, lemon juice, brandy, dark rum, peach Schnapps, club soda). It tasted pretty unpleasant but we were able to run it through Humu's party fountain, so it certainly looked appealing.

We also met a man who might have been the only person who honestly thought the punch tasted great. "Tastes like brown sugar!" he exclaimed. He committed to finishing the punch--a commitment that still astonishes me, more than a week later. He had several pint glasses of the stuff.

Predictably, he was vomiting at the end of the evening.

Still, I admire his commitment. He is clearly made of the stuff that made America great.

I just hope he and his girlfriend (who had to take him home) don't hate me. They were nice and I liked them both. If you two are reading this: Sorry about the puke-inducement. We're all still homies, right?

Hmmm... I'm a bit suspicious of the Joy of Cooking Fish House Punch recipe if it didn't taste good.

We may need to revisit this in the future!

It may just be that the recipe in JoC is not a good one. Or it may be that I suck at punches. I'm guessing the former. Any revisiting of food and drink with Mr. Flannestad, however, is always welcome.
